Cask: Special - JDW Autumn 2012 Beer Festival
Dzuljeta Armoniene has travelled to Shepherd Neame Brewery, in Kent, to collaborate in re-creating this beer especially for this Wetherspoon real-ale festival. This red-coloured beer has an aroma which strikes a good balance of caramel, malt and hops, while the flavour is full bodied, with notes of toast, malt and sweetness, balanced by a subtle, low-hop bitterness. Hops used: Magnum

Beese (2570) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2014
Cask at The Moon Under Water (JDW), Watford on 24 Oct 2012. Poured a clear amber, with a dense white head. Aroma of sweet malt, berries and SN, plastic-like yeast. Caramel and bread in the flavour, with some dried fruit. Finish was honey, resin and grass.

SilkTork (5559) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2014
Oct, 2012. JDW, Portsmouth. Sweetish with some crystal malt notes and a lingering bitterness. OK, but a bit too much like an average Autumn ale.

downender (7958) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2013
Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms, Bristol, November 2012. Deep copper in colour with a tight, off-white head. Sweet, berry fruits, powdered chocolate and toffee, leading to a yeasty, bitter finish. Ok.

Knights Templar, Chancery Lane 1 Nov 12. JDW Festivaløl. Mørk gylden. Lavt skum. Lite aroma. Smaken treaktig. Selje. Syrlig bitterhet etter hvert. Under pari.

Complex ale with a sweet malt aroma and mixed malty roasts in a sweet tasting red tinted ale.

tombyars (1599) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - NOV 19, 2012
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) in November 2012. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear copper red in colour with a thin white head. Very slight note of chewy caramel in the short nose. Thin but creamy mouthfeel and good lacing throughout. Mixed malt base leads to a maltloaf flavour laced with syrupy dates and soft creamy caramel really evident here. This reminds me of a strong version of Caley 80/? definte notes of Scottish export in this. Slight porickle of dusty hop resins present but short in intensity though. Finish is very malty with toffee/butterscotch sweetness coming through in the mouth. This is a really easy session ESB to drink but beware of the ABV though. Well recommended.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2012
Cask handpull, The Felix (JDW), Nuneaton, 13/11/12. Soggy, pleasant, cake-like red-bronze affair speckled with lace. Berries, caramel, some red apple aroma. That dank aniseed and toffee hit again. OK but leaning too close to GK/Bateman’s territory and not worth the units.

yespr (40837) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2012
From cask at Camperdown Place. Pours clear and golden deep amber with a small, creamy off white head. Aroma is roasted malty and light breadish. Sweet, caramelish, toasted and light fruity. Sweet malty and light breadish finish. A bit too sweet and simple for my liking.
